Our Childhood Dreams Have Come True: Gina Rodriguez Is Playing Carmen Sandiego On Netflix

Gina Rodriguez has been cast as the most mysterious woman in the world. According to Tracking Board and Slate, the Puerto Rican actress originally from Chicago, IL, will lend her voice to a new Netflix animated show. Voicing the title character of an animated show is super cool, although I’d be excited to see real-life Gina Rodriguez in the classic red raincoat and signature hat.

The new Netflix show will be animated, which is a shame as Rodriguez’s color is clearly red.

Rodriguez would be perfect for a live-action series as she is definitely in shape to play a butt-kicking Carmen Sandiego super-spy.

Even when training in Muy Thai, she’s rocking that red.


For those who don’t remember, Carmen Sandiego was essentially James Bond in a dress.

This would be a really great way to get out of a first date. She probably inspired the helicopter get away scene in “Louie.”


Carmen Sandiego was the embodiment of cool to kids everywhere who watched.

It was great for kids to see a woman performing high tech espionage while outsmarting everyone. I, personally, assumed she was Latina – with a name like Carmen Sandiego, what else could she be?


I wonder if there will be a love interest, because there really is no one better than Waldo.

We’re so excited to see how this show turns out for Gina!

Get it!

“Narcos” is one of Netflix’s most wildly popular original series. Over the years, fans have learned about Narcos culture and history through the show and we are officially getting another season. Here’s what we know.

“Narcos: Mexico” Season 3 is coming to Netflix and, like, omg.

“Narcos” first started with following the drug trade in Colombia with Pablo Escobar. The fourth season was instead “Narcos: Mexico” and the beginnings of the Mexican drug trade became the focus of the series. Fans went wild for the show and it has continued to enjoy success with the Netflix audience.

Showrunner Eric Newman is stepping down in the coming season.

Instead, co-creator Carlos Bernard is stepping up and taking on the role of showrunner. Newman was the showrunner for five seasons since “Narcos” first started and is excited to see the show develop under Bernard.

“I am grateful for my five years at the helm of ‘Narcos’ and ‘Narcos: Mexico’ and am immensely proud of what this spectacular team has achieved with these shows,” Newman told Variety. “Carlos Bernard is the first person I ever spoke to about this project, over ten years ago, and I am extremely pleased to leave the steering of Season 3 of ‘Narcos: Mexico’ in his very capable hands.”

Brace yourself because Diego Luna is not joining the cast this season.

Tbh, Luna was one of the best parts of the show. He isn’t everything but he was a major part of the iconic and beloved show. The news is bumming out large parts of the “Narcos” fanbase who have come to love and look forward to him.

People are ready for this to happen yesterday.

Like, thank you for letting us know it is happening Netflix. Now we need to know when the show will actually be released. We appreciate the little update but we just need to know when we can watch the show.

We look forward to the release date, Netflix.

We are ready to sit on the couch and binge the season the moment it drops. Let’s get this together and get the show streaming. Thank you so very much!

The Teaser Is Out For Season 3 Of Cobra Kai And OMG I Want To Take Karate Lessons

The Teaser Is Out For Season 3 Of Cobra Kai And OMG I Want To Take Karate Lessons

Netflix / YouTube

Netflix’s “Cobra Kai” is continuing the epic story of Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence. The story now follows the two men as they train the fighters in their own dojos. The Netflix original series is coming back to for season 3 and, honestly, thank you, Netflix.

“Cobra Kai” season 3 is coming soon to Netflix soon and it’s about time.

Season 2 left us with a serious cliff hanger. A melee fight broke out at the high school between Cobra Kai and Miyagi Do. The fight, which was started by Samantha LaRusso and Tory Schwarber, took a shocking turn when Miguel Diaz gets knocked over a railing and falls to onto a staircase. Miguel fell onto the staircase below after being kicked by Robby Keene. Everyone was stunned when they saw Miguel fall and Robby immediately regretted his involvement.

Season 3 of “Cobra Kai” is coming to Netflix Jan. 8, 2021 and they are already renewed for a fourth season.

There is so much excitement around a new season of “Cobra Kai.” The show is bridging a generational gap between people who grew up with “Karate Kid” and those just discovering it through the Netflix show. “Karate Kid” spawned multiple sequels and made karate super cool, obvi. The latest iteration of the franchise puts a Latino, Miguel, in the main spotlight.

Young Latinos are loving the representation they get from Miguel as a main character.

There are issues with Miguel throughout the show that makes for frustrating moments. However, he is a teenager and we all know what it is like to be a teenager and just not get things. He is led by his emotions and, in classic movie teenage angst, finds himself becoming deeply committed to something to release his emotional frustrations.

Also, it continues to push the narrative that representation matters because it does.

It cannot be stressed enough how much people are loving this show.

“Cobra Kai” was a major show when it was first streaming. The Nielsen rating showed that “Cobra Kai” was second in the numbers of streams after its Netflix debut. The show began on YouTube Red (now YouTube Premium) but moved to Netflix because YouTube changed their strategy. The video-sharing platform is focusing more on content producers and less on creating scripted shows.

The move to Netflix brought the show to the forefront of entertainment as it hit number 1 for the streaming giant.

Binge watching television is what most people are doing as we sit in isolation in our apartments and homes. That kind of prolonged isolation has given people a chance to reconnect with their streaming options and dive into the content that is out there.

This show might be creating a new generation of karate enthusiasts.

If you’ve seen “Cobra Kai” then you know how exciting the idea of karate can be. Maybe the show being on Netflix will bring renewed interest to the sport. Who doesn’t want to be part of a dojo with other fighters who are ready to have you back?
